Ranveer Singh says he was ‘Born to Play’ Bajirao

RanveerActor Ranveer Singh, who will soon be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, said that he always wanted to play the role of a warrior onscreen.

Bajirao Mastani casts Ranveer as Maratha leader Peshwa Bajirao I, Deepika Padukone as his warrior queen Mastani and Priyanka Chopra as his first wife Kashibai.

“At a critical stage of my career, I have given more than one year to a project and haven’t done anything else. Also, I went bald. This project has taken so much time. You could do three films meanwhile. It’s a big gamble. It’s a risk. But, somewhere I knew that it would pay off. It will be worth the effort,” said Ranveer.

“When I decided to do it, a lot of well-wishers asked me if I was sure about doing the film. And now that the trailer is out, they see it and understand why I did it,” added Ranveer.

The Gunday actor said that he always wanted to play a warrior and a gangster onscreen.

“I always wanted to play the character of a yodha. I also want to play a gangster. But in my eighth film, I got a chance to play a mahayodha. It is a moment of joy. My name is Ranveer and it means yodha, warrior. I think I was born to play this part. I like the genre of historical drama. So, I was waiting to do a film like this. I was excited about it,” said Ranveer.

“When I heard the script, I understand that it’s a challenge as there are war sequences, emotional drama and the canvas is huge. All of this is going to be difficult and will require a lot of hard work. There is no simple day. In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, everything is grand and huge. It’s like getting ready used to take two and a half hours,” added Ranveer. Ranveer also said that there is no formula for success.

“Nobody has a formula to know what is going to be a success or what is not going to be a success. You should trust your creative instincts. I was very excited about this film as it’s a powerful story,” said Ranveer.

Bajirao Mastani is scheduled to release on December 18.
